So it looks like, if you are using Amaroq for mastodon, you had to re-auth.
On the plus side, notifications from the app now work from me and they didn't yesterday, so 🎉
Thanks @eurasierboy !
Really cool thing, connecting folks who want to contribute to #opensource projects but aren't fluent English writers/speakers with proofreaders and general tutors for kind critique. I hope to see more of this, both to diversify technical communities and get non-traditional technical people involved.
Also, (more wisdom via Spike Trotman) NEVER, EVER sign away lifetime IP rights! That's the most important thing you have as a creator!
If you want to make money from your work, great! Put it on prints, merch! License it! Etc!
But there's really nothing that's worth complete, total, *lifetime* control of your work! Because once you've signed your IP rights away, that's IT.
Hey, y'all-- Facebook recently announced they're launching a "Patreon killer" service.
Regardless of your thoughts on Patreon, FB's alternative is TERRIBLE!
⚠️ 30% gross revenue fee
⚠️ Automatic LIFETIME IP rights to ANYTHING you put on the service
even if you quit!
⚠️ FB wants to give discounts and freebies whenever they like, w/o creator approval, and then deduct it from creator revenue
⚠️ FB will also control WHO sees your content and how many views you have
The slides from the talk @firstname.lastname@example.org and I gave at #pycascades2019 are now up! https://speakerdeck.com/phildini/account-security-for-the-fashionable-app-developer
Thanks for your patience, and thanks for coming!
My thoughts on this aren't fully formed, but it is fascinating that OBS, the software that thousands use to stream to Twitch, is now supporting itself through Patreon.
Also, go support the project open source streaming software is important.
So now I'm choosing a lot of my personal recreational media intake based on it's value to the game.
Like, #Once on Netflix for it's meaty + bold plot, character development, wealth of #goth + #fantasy imagery :)
#Coldwave, bc vampires.
Heaps of #CriticalRole bc gaming supreme (tbh, it was CR that was so fascinating and educational that I felt confident jumping into Storytelling/ DM'ing even though I haven't spent as much time as a PC as I would think necessary. Thx Matt Mercer & Crew #critter )
